#BBCAN3 New HOH, Nominations & Eviction

Source: Global

In a tie breaker between Zack, Godfrey and surprisingly Pilar;  Zack became the new HOH!

After celebrating his win in front of the other houseguests, Jordan decided Zack should put him up in order to conceal their closeness. This was an extremely risky move seeing as there is a chance you can't win the POV and take yourself off.

Zack informs Godfrey that he's going to put up him and Jordan as "pawns." Godfrey is shocked that he is being nominated but becomes suspicious with how Jordan is acting when he is told the news as well. Godfrey tells Bobby and Bruno that he is going up and that Zack's plan is to backdoor Kevin. They all think it's a little sketchy.

The first five evicted houseguests got a chance to win a second chance at reentering the house. The challenge sponsored by KFC was an endurance competition. Competitors would have to hold themselves up while balancing on a knot.

I knew from the start that clearly a girl would win this competition. First off was Johnny, then Graig, which left the three powerhouse females left to compete. Risha looked like she was struggling while Sindy and Naeha looked solid. Eventually, Risha dropped and it came down to Sindy and Naeha. Sindy continued to look like this was not difficult even after an hour into the competition. Eventually, Naeha could not hold on any longer and dropped making Sindy with an S victorious!

Sindy re-entered the house and was told explicitly to enter the vault for further instructions.
Once entering the vault, Arisa appeared tell Sindy that in order to keep herself safe from re-nomination Sindy would have to solve a puzzle.

This was her clue to crack the puzzle.

Sindy was determined she would figure out this puzzle in order to earn her safety. Math is by far my worst subject. I know for a fact I would have never figured this out. Either way, Sindy was able to solve the puzzle and earned her safety for the week!

Sindy came back into the house to all the fake, "Oh my god I'm so glad it was you!" But five minutes before Sindy arrived the entire house had made a pact to evict her if she were to come in. Jordan was especially happy that his previous showmance had arrived.

The POV players were picked. Zack, Jordan, Godfrey, Ashleigh, Pilar and Sarah. Godfrey realized at this point he would have to win the POV on his own in order to get off the block. 

The POV was timed.

Jordan decided he would throw the POV and allow Zack to win it. What are you thinking Jordan??

After Zack won the POV he told Jordan in private that he decided he'd not use the veto to backdoor Bruno or Bobby and keep noms the same. Jordan was completely flabbergasted with the idea that he'd remain on the block. At this point, Jordan started to doubt his Newport alliance with Zack. Why would Zack take the risk by keeping Jordan on the block? Jordan realized he needed to change his gameplay and put his faith into his fake alliance The Fortress with Kevin.

Newport is no more.

At the veto ceremony, Zack gave both Jordan and Godfrey a chance to give their plea on why he should use the veto. Jordan referenced Tom from #BBCAN1 when Alec had put him on the block. "Why not, bro?" It got a few chuckles from the houseguests that is until it was Godfrey's turn.

Godfrey stood up and said. "You should use the veto on your boy. Because if you don't, I'm coming after you." Everyone was shocked at Godfrey's outburst but was also slightly amused. 

"I want your blood on these hands."

The veto ceremony ended with Zack believing his plan to get Godfrey out would go down smoothly. The next day, Sindy and Bobby were given a secret mission. They were forced into solitary confinement insidet he vault where two buttons were presented to them. On the screen they had a countdown clock of 24hours. They were given no instructions which caused the two to wonder. What would happen if they pressed that button?

Source: Global

Sindy and Bobby decided they wouldn't press the button in case it caused something bad to happen inside the house. Meanwhile, the rest of the houseguest could only speculate about what Sindy and Bobby were given to do inside the vault. In the last five minutes of their countdown, Arisa came onto the screen to tempt them to push the button. She explained that she would give them an additional five minutes to press the button. If they chose to do so, they would win $10,000 from the 100k prize and would leave the Big Brother house.

Source: Global

The rest of the house heard Arisa's temptation and began to panic. Would Sindy or Bobby press that button? The five minutes passed and neither pressed the button. They both exited the vault and won a feast for the house.

On eviction night, Jordan and Zack believed their plan would go down just as smoothly as ever. With both Godfrey and Jordan on the block, Jordan believed it would be a unanimous vote to evict Godfrey.

After all houseguests voted, Arisa came on with the final vote. In a 5/4 vote, Jordan was blindsided and evicted from the house!

Zack was also shocked.

Bye, Jordan! You shouldn't have volunteered to go on the block!

#Catfish The TV Show: Episode 9: A Hidden Truth

Source: MTV

Jamey writes to Nev and Max from Houston, Texas. Originally from Michigan, Jamey decided to make a huge move by changing scenery and move to Texas. Once he finally settled in, he started a profile on POF (Plenty of Fish) More like Plenty of Catfish! It was there he met a girl named Ari. (Also lives in Houston.)

Meet Jamey.
Source: MTV

Jamey and Ari hit it off and become very close online. Jamey explained that the two could talk about anything, and had a very close bond. They have yet to meet in real life, and apparently, Ari confessed that she thinks Jamey and herself should move on Catfish? That's kind of odd... What does Ari have to hide about herself?

Meet Ari.
Source: MTV

Nev and Max call up Jamey on Skype to hear his story in person. According to Jamey, Ari and he, text, talk on the phone, and even Skype! When he and Ari have Skype, they've even webcammed, but she's only shown him her face up close. They question why she doesn't show anything other than her face. Jamey said he's tried to ask her to show the rest of herself, but she refuses.

Source: MTV

Nev and Max are still a little skeptical decide to fly out to Houston to meet Jamey. Jamey became attracted to Ari from having deep conversations with her. They've been able to connect over personal stories and things that have happened in their history.

Nev and Max come to a theory that maybe one of the reasons Ari doesn't show anything other than her face may be because she's pregnant. Oh damn...Jamey tells them that's impossible because she's a virgin apparently.

Nev and Max start their investigation on Ari. They see she has a common number of friends all from Houston. They decide to reach out to some of Ari's friend to question. While they wait for a response, they do some image searches on her profile picture. They find a Youtube page, but there are no videos posted. Next, time to run the phone number. They find the phone number is listed under a woman named Irma. Apparently that's Ari's mom.

They also find some old posts of Ari talking about meeting In-Laws. Is this chick married?? They go through her photos and find a picture of her with some random girl. Could this be her husband? 

Who dat?

They call it a day for their research. The next day, Nev gets a call from one of Ari's friends, Sophie. They straight out ask her if she's married and immediately Sophia has, "To go." She hangs up which only leads more suspicion to Nev and Max.

Now, Ari has flipped the switch and is acting like a bitch. She blows up Jamey's phone with rude texts telling him to stop texting her. Apparently Nev calling up her friend Sophie got her mad. Why would you initiate this idea to be on the show if you're going to be a bitch about it after?

Nev and Max decide to just call up Ari. Ari tells Nev that she's nervous, but Nev explains Jamey feels the same. Ari decides that this is mistake, and hangs up on Nev. What the hell?

Really, you gonna hang up on Nev?
Source: MTV

Ari calls Nev the next day and tells them she would like to meet them in person before meeting with Jamey. She wants to reveal her secret to them to get their reaction. Nev and Max agree to meet up with her. They drive out and meet her in person. She drops her bombshell to Nev and Max.

Source: MTV

Nev and Max explain they thought she might be married. She says she's not. Ari explains she's always known she was meant to be a woman. Her family has been very supported of her decision, which is great! 

With this newfound information, Nev and Max head back to Jamey. Both are unsure of how Jamey will take this information once revealed to him. They meet up with Jamey and sit down with him. They tell Jamey that Ari is a transgender female. Jamey allows that to sink in and seems really bothered by that fact.

 Blindsided.
Source: MTV

After letting the information process, Jamey decides he wants to still meet Ari. 

Source: MTV

Jamey and Ari finally meet in person, but there's an awkward distance between them as they stand before one another. They don't really hug and you can tell Jamey is still taking this all in. 

Source: MTV

He's hurt that she lied to him for all this time. Jamey goes to sit and talk with Ari in private but she suddenly clams up and refuses to talk. What the heck? Jamey and Ari are no longer dating and talk here and there, but not much. Ari is still looking for love online & offline and has become more confident with his transgender status.

Catfish The TV Show: Episode 8: Playing Nev & Max

Source: MTV

Whitney has been in an on again off again relationship with a girl from the west coast named Bre.

Meet Bre
Source: MTV

 Whitney says the only thing keeping them apart is the distance. Understandable. Whitney says she's tried to video chat with Bre, but it never works out. Typical.  Also, Whitney has constantly asked to be accepted as a friend on Facebook but Bre constantly pushes it back. Sketchy...

Meet Whitney
Source: MTV

Nev and Max call up Whitney to find out why Whitney is so into Bree. Apparently they have loads in common and she considers her as a best friend. They only talk on the phone and text. (At least she's heard her voice over the phone.) Bre has convinced Whitney that she can't afford to visit Whitney in NY. Whitney is also on a tight budget and can't afford to fly out and visit her, herself. 

Source: MTV

Bre was previously an exotic dancer/stripper but has stopped working to go back to school. Hm..
Whitney shows Max & Nev the two pictures she has of Bre. Two pictures? That's it, girl? The only other information Whitney has is that she knows Bre has a tattoo on her thigh that reads: "Lucious." 

Nev and Max start off their research with a phone search. They find Bre's phone is at least a CA phone registered numbered. They search up Bre's email and find a twitter account with a location in LA. They also find a Youtube page for her. Next they do an image search and get a hit. They find the two images that they Whitney had of Bre under a profile of a girl named Kash. Both Twitter and Facebook profiles are located in LA. What the heck? How confusing? Which girl is the real Bre? 

Will the real Bre, please stand up?
Source: MTV

Nev reaches out to Kash over Facebook to see if the two girls are connected. There may be a possibility that the girls know each other somehow. The next morning Kash gets back to them and Nev calls her up. Nev asks Kash if she knows a girl named Whitney. The next question they ask is if she knows a girl named Bre. Kash tells Nev that's she good friends with Bre and let her use her photos on dating sites. That's kind of weird, but okay.

Source: MTV

Kash tells them to search up Lucious B. (She goes by that name over FB) They look her up and match her up with the Twitter account they found online. Her Facebook photos are a bit, ahem, explicit. But it only gets more interesting when they discover a conversation on her Facebook with Whitney! Hold up, I thought Whitney said she couldn't get Bre to add her over Facebook?? Nev and Max only become more confused and suspicious as the realization that Whitney might be playing with Nev, Max, and the show by catfishing them!

Source: MTV

Nev asks the producers if Whitney is doing this just to be on TV or to get a plane ticket, then they need to contact MTV.  The producers want them to go with it and continue investigating this to see if this really is a scam before throwing in the towel.

Source: MTV

Nev & Max meet up with Whitney to show her their research. They also want to see if they can catch her out in a lie. They show Whitney her, her year long chat over Facebook with Lucious B. BUSTED, BIG TIME. They call her out on her lies, and Whitney tries to cover it up. "I don't know that girl. I didn't have this conversation." Girl, don't, just don't.

Cringe:
Source: Giphy

Whitney admits that Bre had set up this whole plan to contact the show solely so they could get a free ticket and meet up. Nev and Max are disappointed that they wasted all this time looking up a girl that Whitney has spoken to, added on Facebook and knows exactly what she looks like.

Source: NBC


They call Bre to get her side of the story. She basically spills her guts and says the only reason why she did this was so she could meet Whitney. Girl... Nev and Max get suckered back in and want to help unite the two in person, but still feel conflicted with the fact that they have still been played. 

Nev and Max visit Whitney again to get her truthful side of the story. They want to give her another chance to hear her out. Whitney apologizes saying that she feels horrible about lying to them. Nev and Max forgive Whitney's apology and decide to unite her with Bre.

Whitney and Bre finally meet in person. Which was very sweet if I'm honest.  The two are not dating and are in love! Awww,  just don't lie to production, girls. 

#BBCAN3 Eviction Night: Bye, Johnny!

This week's HOH was Bruno!

Bruno put up Johnny and Sarah for eviction. (His ultimate target: Johnny) The POV challenge came into play and the veto players were as followed: Sarah, Johnny, Bruno, Brittnee, Kevin, and Bobby.

Source: Global

Players had to shoot targets in order to knock out their competitor. And of course everyone was targeting Johnny. 

Bobby got really into this competition

Soon enough, Johnny was knocked out of the competition. Boo.

It came down to Bruno and Bobby but in the end, Bobby was defeated and Bruno won the POV!

During the POV ceremony, Bruno was told to enter the vault. Inside it was revealed to him about the Twisto's Twist that Canada had been voting for. He had the option to veto both Johnny and Sarah and replace them with whomever he wanted. Ultimately in the end, Bruno chose the safest and boring option of NOT using the POV. I mean it is his game at the end of the day, so, whatever.

Source: Global

Johnny did a lot of campaigning trying to save his butt from being evicted but the house had made the decision that he would be going. Sarah and Johnny even did some strategizing using Gummie bears.

Big Brother gave a task to the houseguests to entertain us doing BBTV. Personally it fell a little flat with me. I didn't really find it funnny...

Source: Global

They won their task by entertaining live feeders and were given alcohol and food. Things got a little steamy between Willow and Sarah!

With a unanimous vote, Johnny was evicted from the house. I was sad to see him go!

Source: Global

We got to take a sneak peek into the sequester house, and see Risha, Sindy, Naeha and Graig.

Source: Global

All agreed that if reentering the house they need to go hard and play hard.

They met on the stage with Arisa where they were informed they would play a challenge never seen before on Big Brother Canada. What kind of competition could it be??

Source: Global

Next came the new HOH competition. It's the traditional "Before or After." We'll find out who becomes the new HOH on Sunday and also find out who re-enters the house!
